“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
I am hugely indebted to my friend Adrian at FATman photos see eccentric99.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/rants-and-cecil-beaton/ for this wonderful quote from the English photographer and stage designer Cecil Beaton.
This back stage shot was diffused through blue plastic fencing at the Bristol Harbour Festival yesterday evening.
My apologies you should be seeing this picture about 50% brighter than its displayed on WordPress. The shape of the girl walking out of the frame should be ethereal and transient not fully defined.
After four attempt’s to present the picture as conceived I have failed and I don’t understand why. This is an sRGB proof JPEG copy file created in Lightroom so why won’t the web browser display the file as saved on a calibrated monitor? I use two calibrated monitors so I can see the WordPress version, is darker than the Lightroom proof copy.
The dark art of colour management strikes again!
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog this week.
